Event Description:
The season of goodwill and helping others starts at Lufkin Mall. The shopping center is offering the community an opportunity to help those most in need by teaming up with the Salvation Army to host the organization’s annual Angel Tree. “Our ongoing, 15-year relationship with the Salvation Army and the generosity of the community has helped make a difference for families and seniors in need,” said Sean Griffin, Lufkin Mall general manager. From Nov. 14 to Dec. 16, shoppers can select a tag that lists a requested item from the Angel Tree located near Zales and Santa’s winter home. Gifts typically requested include clothing and toys. Generous shoppers can drop new, unwrapped gifts at the shopping center’s management office next to Lufkin Mall 9 Theaters, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or at the Salvation Army, 412 S 3rd St, Lufkin. Donors are encouraged to include wrapping paper with their gift. The Salvation Army estimates that roughly 1,000 children and seniors in need will benefit from the generosity of Lufkin Mall shoppers. Salvation Army volunteers will distribute the gifts Dec.20 to families and seniors in the surrounding counties. Rudolph the Red Nosed Pumping Unit will be on display throughout the season in the shopping center’s parking lot, while Santa Claus will be in residence until Dec. 24.
